Student Forum 
does about-face 

on divestment 

By Adam Arkel ’85 

Student Forum rejected a resolution urging the 
Trustees of the College to divest Middlebury’s finan¬ 
cial holdings in companies dealing with South Africa, 
at last Sunday’s meeting. The motion was rejected 15 
to 11 with 6 abstentions. 

Prior to the vote, John Craven, Professor of 
Economics, and John Spencer, Associate Professor of 
History, made presentations to Forum on the issue of 
divestment. Forum asked Craven, who supports 
divestment, and Spencer, who opposes it, to speak to 
Forum after a controversial vote taken on October 4 
favored divestment. At that time, divestment was urg¬ 
ed by a vote of 16 to 1 with 12 abstentions; but, many 
of the 12 Forum members who abstained explained 
that they felt they were not knowledgable enough on 
the issue to formulate an opinion. Synopses of Craven 
and Spencer’s arguments follow. 

Cravens He said he ad¬ 
vocates the College’s total 
disengagement from 
assets involved in South 
Africa. Craven based his 
argument on the “failure of 
the Sullivan principles to 
have effect” on increasing 
equality for blacks in 
South Africa. 

The Sullivan principles, 
created by Reverend Leon 
Sullivan in 1977, are a 
series of guidelines for cor¬ 
porations involved in 
South Africa to ensure 
fairness in employment 
and payment policies. 

Craven said, “Only 175 
out of 350 Am erican cor¬ 
porations involved in

Spencers He stated, “My 
position on South Africa 
does not differ from Pro¬ 
fessor Craven’s. We have 
every reason to hate apar¬ 
theid. However, divest¬ 
ment is not the answer to 
the problem.” 

Spencer continued, 
“America’s pulling out of 
South Africa wouldn’t do 
any good. American cor¬ 
porations have the biggest 
shares in South Africa’s oil, 
computers, and trucking. If 
the U.S. withdraws, then 
less morally responsible 
nations’ corporations 
would take over our in¬ 
terests. To make divest¬ 
ment effective, more na-

Economics fights overcrowding 

By Jon Kelly ’85 

“Economics can’t lose, 
because inflation draws great 
media attention and so does 
depression,” explained John 
Craven, Professor of 
Economics. Last year, the 
Economics faculty and Stu¬ 
dent Advisory Council deem¬ 
ed the department’s 
student/teacher ratio to be 
too heavy, with over 700 
students taking courses each 
semester from a staff of nine. 
Additionally, the department 

was concerned because the 
staff for this academic year 
was to be reduced to eight by 
the retirement of Klauss 

In January, 1981, the 
Economics department decid¬ 
ed to make several changes in 
its curriculum and major pro¬ 
gram to alleviate over¬ 
crowding in its courses. “If we 
continue to allow such high 
numbers of students to enroll 
in introductory courses, we 
would not have been able to 
allocate the time to upper 

level courses which we felt 
our majors deserved,” ex¬ 
plained Craven. “It was 
believed we had been 
slighting our upper level 
courses a bit.” 

A new calculus course for 
economics majors, MA 115, 
was created and made a 
prerequisite to 

Macroeconomic Theory 
(EC350) and Microeconomic 
Theory (EC355). An economics 
course for non-majors was in¬ 
troduced, EC 100. In addition,

munity is possible at relative¬ 
ly small cost.” This was the 
conclusion of the Middlebury 
College Alcohol Committee, 
in their report released last 

Some of the Committee’s 
recommendations include the 
development of an alcohol 
abuse assistance program, an 
increased effort to make 
alcohol education accessible 
to community members, new 
disciplinary measures to 
punish alcohol-related of¬ 
fenses, and, even the 
establishment of an on- 
campus pub. 

The Alcohol Committee, 
which included students, 
faculty, and administrators, 
was formed at the request of 
College President Olin 

committees, the members ex¬ 
amined many facets of the 
role of alcohol in the life of the 
Middlebury community. 

Bruce Peterson, Professor of 
Mathematics and Chairman 
of the Committee, said that he 
hopes “the report will be 
taken seriously, as a lot of 
hard work went into it.” He 
added that a problem with 
alcohol abuse does exist on 
the campus, and that the 
Committee’s recommenda¬ 
tions realistically address this 

The Committee’s first 
recommendation is “the 
establishment of a Mid¬ 
dlebury Assistance Program 
for employees and students 
whose alcohol use interferes 
with their ability to perform 

ed counselors from either the 
College or the town who 
would work with students 
and staff directly or make 
referrals to other agencies. 

The report notes the success 
of such assistance programs 
at other colleges, such as the 
University of Vermont. The 
members estimate first year 
cost of the program at ap¬ 
proximately $4,000, for the 
treatment of six to ten people. 

In addition to the 
Assistance Program, the 
Committee recommends that 
alcohol education in general 
be made more accessible on 
campus. This education could 
be incorporated into a 
general examination of 
decision-making and values 
clarification. Such education 

noted that alcohol habits 
develop quickly. 

Two other modes of alcohol 
education were presented in 
the report. The first was in¬ 
creasing the accessibility of 
information about alcohol 
and drug abuse available 
through the College Counsel¬ 
ing Service. The second 
recommendation concerned 
the use of breathalyzers at 
“selected College and frater¬ 
nity events.” The committee 
suggested that offering this 
service provides a “useful, in¬ 
teresting first step in alcohol

The proposal to restructure 
the Final Examination period 
was the major topic of discus¬ 
sion at last Friday’s Com¬ 
munity Council meeting. 
David Rosenberg, Associate 
Professor of Political Science, 
served as spokesman for the 
subcommittee looking into 
possible changes aimed at 
reducing exam schedule con¬ 
flicts. According to Lorraine 
Fleck, Student Employment 
Coordinator, there are 
already approximately 200 
exam conflicts built into the 
existing set up. 

The new proposal, “Space 
Out the Exams, Not the 
Students” was suggested by 
Michael Olinick, Professor of 
Mathematics. He wants to 
piace exams on alternate 
days to reduce schedule con¬ 
flicts, and allow students to 
make better use of reading 
and exam periods. According 
to the proposal, exams would 
begin on Tuesday of reading 

week and continue on alter¬ 
nating days until the follow¬ 
ing Tuesday. Rosenberg said 
the proposal is “no perfect 
solution,” but, he hopes that it 
will solve more problems than 
it creates. 

Discussion on the topic was 
varied and inconclusive. 
Caleb Rick ’82, Student 
Forum Chairmen, said Forum 
is concerned that this new 
system would not change 
anything unless certain ex¬ 
ams could be given towards 
the end of the examination 
period. Ari Fleischer ’82, Co- 
Chairman of Community 
Council, also questioned the 
impact that cutting short the 
present reading period might 
have on Spring Weekend and 
the students’ psychological 

A1 Wagman ’82 was 
vehemently opposed to any 
proposal aimed at helping 
students budget their time, 
stating that “I can handle my 
time myself.” Agreeing with 
Wagman, David George, 

Spanish Instructor, said that 
“this is not high school, this is 
college,” and that social 
pressures did not concern 
him. He said he thought that 
such a proposal should be 
considered solely on the basis 
of its efficiency in curbing the 
number of conflicts. Karl Lin- 
dholm, Assistant Dean of 
Students, replied that “if we 
can devise a system that can 
reduce pressure, then we 
ought to go to it." 

Steven Rockefeller, Dean of 
the College and Co-Chairman 
of the Community Council, 
said that “the issue is not real¬ 
ly resolved in people’s minds” 
and suggested that further 
discussion be taken up by 
Student Forum. Any proposal 
dealing with exam week 
changes would have to be 
passed by the Community, 
Educational and Faculty 
Councils before being im¬ 

Poor lighting and flooded 
sidewalks in certain areas of 


campus were problems ad¬ 
dressed by David Ginevan, 
Associate Treasurer. He 
reported that the SDU park¬ 
ing lot and sections of A lot 
had been identified as excep¬ 
tionally dark areas and would 
receive additional lighting. 

~“Duck boards” have also 
been placed on certain 
sidewalks to combat flooding 
caused by recent rain storms. 

Rick’s proposal to form a 
Buildings and Grounds Com¬ 
mittee met with opposition 
from various Council 
members. Rick said that he 
felt the present process of 
having Community Council 
deal with certain aspects of 
College maintenance had not 
worked and “really wanted 
ideas from the Council” on 
how to remedy the situation. 
Rockefeller pledged support 
in making the Council more 
effective in these areas. 

The Council’s next meeting 
will be Friday, October 23, at 
2:15 PM in Proctor Lounge.

South Africa have signed 
the Sullivan statement. 
There are no penalties or 
sanctions on companies 
which fail to support the 
principles. The principles 
for monitoring those com¬ 
panies which have signed 
are not well known. The 
monitors themselves, such 
as the Edmund Clark 
Foundation, usually have 
large investments in South 

Craven added that the 
Sullivan principles “can 
only work if the South 
African government wants 
them to work, but it does 
not. Suilivan himself rates 
companies ascribing to the 
principles with an 8 on a 
scale to 100 in terms of 

their efficacy, thereby 
disowning his own 

Craven said that he 
believes that with a 
general divestment move¬ 
ment from South Africa, in¬ 
cluding withdrawal by 
• D such corporations as 
General Motors, Exxon, 
and Mobil, the South 
African economy could be 
weakened significantly. 

Craven concluded, “This 
nation experienced a civil 
war and a tumultuous 
period of civil rights ac¬ 
tivism over the fulfillment 
of constitutional rights. Im¬ 
portant aspects of our 
history have been wrapped 
up in our concern for 
rights. We should not sup¬ 
port a nation that institu- 
tionalzes racism. Institu¬ 
tionalized racism is of a 
greater magnitude than 
oppressive, unstable dic¬ 

tatorships, as institutions 
remain while dictators 
come and go. 

“The Sullivan principles 
are not enough. I favor 
total disengagement from 
South Africa.”

r tions than the United 
States alone would have to 
withdraw. These countries 
include Great Britain, 
France, and Germany. 
None of these nations is 
willing to do so.” 

Spencer also differed 
from Craven in that he 
believed that the Sullivan 
principles have had some 
positive effect in South 
Africa. “Gains that seem 
small to us, such as in¬ 

tegrated cafeterias, are 
very significant in terms of 
South Africa.” Spencer ad¬ 
ded that in order to do 
away totally with apar¬ 
theid, tremendous 
pressure would have to be 
exerted because white 
South Africans are deeply 
convinced of the correct¬ 
ness of their system. 

Spencer concluded, “If 
we sell our interests in 
South Africa, we will lose 
our voices in the com¬ 
panies’ policies. I advocate 
instead increased contribu¬ 
tions for philanthropy in 
South Africa by U.S. cor¬ 
porations as well as con¬ 
vincing American com¬ 
panies to neither expand 
their holdings there nor for 
others to begin investing. 
We should work for a 
broader application of the 
Sullivan principles, and if 
that fails, threaten divest¬

disciplinary procedures 
related to alcohol use.” 
Noting existing hypocrisies, 
the Committee recommended 
that penalties be developed to 
fit the severity of the infrac¬ 
tions. Currently there is “little 
intermediate ground” bet¬ 
ween reprimand and suspen¬ 
sion. However, it was 
asserted that “intoxication is 
a serious problem and will not 
excuse inappropriate 

The problem with the lack 
of non-alcoholic alternatives 
at College functions was also 
examined by the Committee. 
Although a non-alcoholic 
alternative is required at all 
student parties, it is often in¬ 
accessible and in short supp¬ 
ly. Peterson said he hoped 
this problem would “be acted 
on immediately,” as it existed 
at lectures and departmental 
meetings as well as student 


One problem examined in 
detail by the Alcohol Commit¬ 
tee was the effect of alcohol 
on student life at Middlebury. 
According to the report, “the 
quality of student life is not 
only affected by excessive 
alcohol use but also con¬ 
tributes to it." Two specific 
problems studied were dorm 
vandalism and the lack of 
late-night student functions. 

In order to reduce the 
amount of vandalism in the 
dormitories, which costs the 
College at least $50,000 an¬ 
nually, the Committee recom¬ 
mended that the lounges in 
each dormitory “be liberated 
immediately.” Furnishing and 
renovating the lounges would 
provide students with social 
rooms and discourage 
reckless destruction. The 
Committee further recom¬ 
mended that Hepburn, Battell 
and the New Dormitories 
should be painted and 
carpeted to alleviate both 
grimness and noise pro¬ 

The report alsb raised the 

possibility of establishing 
dorm monitors on a trial basis 
in the “large freshmen dor¬ 
mitories.” However, it was 
noted that an evaluation of 
the system should be con¬ 
ducted after one year, as this 
system would restrict 
students’ freedom in the dor¬ 

One recommendation that 
Peterson predicted would “be 
a surprise to many” is the 
establishment of an on- 
campus pub, “serving beer, 
wine, and a selection of non¬ 
alcoholic drinks and food and 
offering such other attrac¬ 
tions as may be appropriate.” 

The Committee concluded 
that the “experience of other 
institutions indicates that on- 
campus pubs are a positive 
influence.” These pubs offer 
another social alternative 
and generally encourage 
responsible drinking habits, 
according to the report. To ex¬ 
amine this option further, the 
Committee recommended a 
administration Committee to 
“oversee the organization 

and operation of the pub dur¬ 
ing the academic year 

In order to accommodate 
students’ late night activities, 
the Committee recommended 
more late night movies, ex¬ 
tended Pool and Field House 
hours, and the re¬ 
establishment of a late night 
study area. 

The Committee recognized 
the potential staff shortage 
that the new programs would 
create and subsequently 
recommended the hiring of 
one person “with direct 
responsibility for these pro¬ 
grams or with duties which 
will free others to fill th- e 

In addition to these specific 
recommendations, the 
Alcohol Committee recongiz- 
ed the fact that “open-minded 
concern and honest commit¬ 
ment from the entire Col¬ 
lege,” is needed to alleviate 
the problems with alcohol on

Professors discuss crisis in Poland 

By Laurie Doyle ’85 

The socio-economic 
upheaval presently occurring 
in Poland was the subject of a 
roundtable discussion spon¬ 
sored by the Political Science 
department last Monday. The 
discussion panel was chaired 
by Murray Dry, Professor of 
Political Science, and the 
speakers were: Michael 
Kraus, Instructor in Political 
Science; Gavro Altman, 
Visiting Professor from the 
University of Ljubljana in 
Yugoslavia and former 
Yugoslav Ambassador to 
North Vietnam; Olin Robison, 
College President; Anne 
Sa’adah, Instructor in 
Political Science; and Russell 
Leng, Professor of Political 

Kraus opened the discus¬ 
sion by presenting a 
historical background to the 
situation. Poland’s 

locality—“squeezed between 
Russia and Germany,” 
remarked Kraus—is a key fac¬ 
tor in the crisis, having 
“shaped Poland’s national 
destiny.” Kraus said that 
Poland is within the Soviet’ 
sphere of influence and is, 
strategically, one of the most 
important allies to the USSR. 
But, Kraus said, the Poles are 
struggling to be free from 
Soviet domination. 

Kraus commented that to 
better understand Poland’s 
national identity one must 
look at the enormous effect 
the Catholic Church has on 
national unity. Kraus said 
that the Church is in¬ 
separable from the Polish 
consciousness, and the ascen¬ 
sion of Pope John Paul II, a 
Pole, has proved a turning 
point for the Polish people. 
Kraus, said it is the Church, 
not the Communist Party, to 
whom the people turn for 
leadership. Kraus remarked 
that the Communist Party 
has lost some of its authority 
in Poland. 

Kraus said the most to break from socialist models

Middlebury Financiers Organize

By Tracey Kammerer ’84 

The Middlebury Financial 
Group held an organizational 
meeting on October 8 to 
discuss plans for their newly 
created club. The club is be¬ 
ing initiated to give students 
a place where they can ex¬ 
change ideas and information 
concerning industry and 
finance. Greg Matthews ’82 
and Benjy Burditt ’82 led the 

meeting which was attended 
by nine interested students. 

Burditt stated that the club 
would “fill a demand which 
exists here.” He said that 
there are many Middlebury 
students interested in 
business and finance who 
would be willing to discuss 
their interests in the field and 
follow current events. He sug 
gested that a volunteer could, 
for example, follow the stock 

market, study energy-related 
industries, or- investigate the 
financial activities in a par¬ 
ticular area of the world, and 
then report to the group. 

Burditt said he felt the club 
could also provide students 
with connections to various 
corporations which might of¬ 
fer internships. He pointed 
out that no other organiza¬ 
tion on campus offered this 
type of service. 

The other students present 
agreed that a “library of some 
sort” to contain Corporate 
Annual Reports and Business 
magazines would be useful 
for students seeking jobs and 
for those who want access to 
magazines .which Starr 
Library does not subscribe to. 
Matthews pointed out that 
the Starr Library provides 
students with only four

business magazines. “They 
don’t even have Money or 
Barrons,” he complained. 

One student suggested that 
the Financial Group would 
benefit from input from the 
Economics department. Mat¬ 
thews and Burditt agreed; 
however, they said that the 
department was oriented 
towards “theory” and not 
“private sector” activity. The 
department offers no courses 
in business and finance. Mat¬ 
thews and Burditt said that 
the group should sponsor 
visiting speakers from New 
York corporations. 

Another student's sugges¬ 
tion that the club could “play 
around with investing a little 
money” met with enthusiasm. 
In addition, those present felt 
that the club could provide a 
service for the -entire com¬ 
munity by submitting articles 
to The Campus. 

Burditt stated that ultimate¬ 
ly he would like to see the 
group become a school fund 
ed organization. This status, 
however, would require some 
form of organization under a 
constitution with a specified

he and Matthews would be

said, “I don’t want it to fade.” 

The group plans to hold a 
second meeting on October 15 
and subsequent meetings 
every two weeks. Matthews 
emphasized that “although 
experience is nice, it is not 
necessary.” Those present 
said they felt that others 
would want to become involv¬ 
ed in the club since, according 
to Burditt, “this school has

The Middlebury Campus 


The Alcohol Committee has compiled the results of 
its discussions and has made several constructive 
recommendations in its report submitted to Olin 
Robison, College President, this week. 

Rather than condemning the use of alcohol in 
moralistic tones, the report treats students as adults 
capable of making intelligent decisions about per¬ 
sonal alcohol use. Instead df calling for the elimina¬ 
tion or strict reduction of alcohol on campus, the 
report focuses on solving the problems that result 
from the abuse of alcohol. 

The one point that will undoubtedly receive the 
most attention from students is the recommendation 
to establish an on-campus pub. If a pub is set up cor¬ 
rectly, it could provide an alternative to parties and 
downtown bars, as well as creating new student jobs. 
However, several questions must be answered before 
any plans are considered. 

The recommendation calls for a pub “selling beer, 
wine, and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks and food 
and offering such other attractions as may be ap¬ 
propriate (e.g., a dance floor, games, occasional enter¬ 
tainment).” In addition, the Committee proposed “the 
formation of a student-faculty-administration govern¬ 
ing body to oversee the organization and operation of 
the pub during the academic year 1981-82.” In design¬ 
ing the pub, we urge this governing body to pay 
special attention to the “other attractions”—the enter¬ 
tainment, dance floor, decor, in short, the whole at¬ 
mosphere—of the pub. We can’t support a Studio 54, 
but can we stomach a new Crest Room with beer? 
Even alcohol wouldn’t make us forget how uncomfor¬ 
table those chairs are. Essentially, it is these other at¬ 
tractions which will mean the difference between 
creating another bar and creating a whole new social 
alternative. Do it right. Or don’t do it at all.

increase bile secretion. But 
there is something else which 
has redefined the word “irk”

television commercials. 

Television advertisements

eliminate the three-day reading period which 
precedes exams; instead, exams would be given on 
alternating days starting on the Tuesday after 
classes end and continuing for a week. 

We oppose this proposal. First, reading week—even 
though it is actually only three days—gives many 
students a chance to read the book, get the notes, or 
make up the lab they couldn’t get to in October 
because they were sick, out of town—or out to lunch. 
We’re not making excuses; we’re being realistic. 

Second, reading week gives students a few days to 
unwind. Pushing the first exam up two days would 
destroy Spring Weekend, for many students would

Proponents of the motion say that it will reduce

College to reduce some of its scheduling conflicts, 
however, is to encourage more self-scheduled, take-

for the specified amount of time and then return it to 
their professor. We have an honor code system

and instructors, I emphasize 
that the overall objective of 
f the course is to develop a 
comprehensive understan¬ 
ding of several different en¬ 
vironments through examina¬ 
tion of component parts and 
the complex interrelation¬ 
ships among them. The 
course specifically involves 
field study in botany, soils, 
ecology, geology and geomor- 
phOlogy (which incidentally, 
is the study of land forms). 

I genuinely appreciate your 
coverage of an event that pro¬ 
vided valuable academic and 
personal experience for many 
students, but I am concerned 
that people who may be in¬ 
terested in the course do not 
conclude that it is principally 
a geology field trip.

As a dishroom worker I 
have become aware of the 
great quantities of food that 
are needlessly wasted by Mid¬ 
dlebury students every day. 
Untouched pieces of bread 
and meat and whole custom- 
made salads are thrown 
down the garbage disposal at 
an alarming rate. 

Every student on the meal 
plan pays for food that is 
thrown away. There is no 
question that it would cost us 
all less to eat at' the dining 
halls if everyone took only 
what he or she can eat. 

Aside from the obvious 
financial reasons, there are 
reasons beyond our little 
world of Middlebury College. 
One need not travel far out in¬ 
to the world to find people 
who go hungry, for there are 
families in Addison County 
without enough food. 
Although it is hard to imagine 
that the uneaten food we let 
ride down the conveyor belt 
to the garbage has any effect 
outside our college, we must 
realize that our actions, 
however indirectly, do affect 
other people. 

Please ask for only what 
you can eat—servers are 
more than willing to take 
back food and everyone 
benefits from your effort.

No method in silent madness 

According to Peter 
Thalheim ’82 in last week’s 
Campus President Reagan 
has not given us an outline of 
his foreign policy because 
“the. White House believes 
that it is unwise to expose 
your global strategy to the 
world, especially to your 
adversaries.” While no 
foreign policy speech has 
been made, Reagan is of 
course, according to 
Thalheim, working feverishly 
to achieve stability and peace 
in all parts of the world, 
especially the Middle East 
and Southern Africa. 

I wonder if Thalheim really 
believes his assertion that 
Reagan’s refusal to publicly 
state foreign policy goals and 
methods is really beneficial to 
the supposed policy. Perhaps 
he feels it goes something like

think we ought to outline new 
proposals to get the whole 
process moving again? 

R: Al? 

H: No can do. The Russians 
might move in if we do. 

R: Right. If we state our pro¬ 
posals, the Russians will jump 
right in. We’ve got to keep 
them guessing. Maybe they’ll 
think We don’t have a plan 
and that’s when we’ll spring it 
on ’em. Hah! I can just see 
their face. A new peace plan 
created by Ronald Reagan ...

prosperity to everyone in the

ought to tell at least Israel 
and Egypt? 

R: Al? 

H: No. 

R: Right, no. If we tell Egypt 
and Israel it won’t work. 

M: What won’t work? 

R: The new peace proposals, 
of course!

R: Al?

And if someone knows our

able to implement them in 
secrecy. And that’s crucial to 
our success. Without secrecy 
we can’t be sure to get ab¬

H: Give ’em hell, Ed. 

M: Thank you, Mr. 

Come on, Mr. Thalheim. Do 
you really believe that not 
publicly outlining plans for 
peace talks is crucial or even 
necessary for their success? 
On the contrary, a public 
statement might give the 
necessary direction to all 
countries involved instead of 
letting them sweat it out. 
There is no valid reason for 
keeping foreign policy- a 
secret, it seems clear that 
Reagan has no comprehen¬ 
sive policy other than stopp¬ 
ing the Russians. And I am 
sorry to say that that policy 
alone is not sufficient if Mr. 
Reagan really desires a

Eric Friedman ’82 


I never cease to be amazed 
by the shenanigans my con¬ 
gressional colleagues go 
through to enhance their own 
pay and benefits. The game is 
re-played in nearly every ses¬ 
sion of Congress. The objec¬ 
tive is always the same: toget 
as big a raise as possible 
without upsetting the folks 
back home whose votes will 
be needed in the next elec- 
^ tion. 

This year is no exception. 
The House and Senate each 
worked out different ways of 
raising income without mak¬ 
ing it look like any of us, in¬ 
dividually, wanted more in¬ 
come, and the two systems 
were accommodated in a con¬ 
ference report worked out 
last week between the leader¬ 
ship of the two chambers. 

The Senate plan had two 
major provisions, both of 
which would attract con¬ 
troversy back home if they 
were widely publicized. The 
first, and most controversial, 
abolishes the $25,000 limit on 
outside earned income, 
which, in practice, mostly 
comes from speaking fees. 
This applies only to senators: 
members of the House would 
still be limited to about $9,000 
a year in outside earned in¬ 

opposes Congressional pay raise 

The second provision of the 
Senate plan removes the 
$3,000 cap on the tax deduc¬ 
tion senators and con¬ 
gressmen can take for their 
living expenses away from 
home. This is defensible, as 
anybody in the private sector 
is allowed unlimited deduc¬ 
tions for their actual ex¬ 
penses away form home in 
performing their jobs. But it 
is, in practice, a back door 
way of getting a pay increase. 

The House, meanwhile, 
opted for another procedure 
which has succeeded in the 
past: establiching a 

mechanism which will allow 
all of us to get automatic pay 
raises in the future, at which 
time we can all kick and 
scream and complain that we 
doh’t want the extra money 
but have no way of stopping 

The pay raise mechanism 
was tucked, as in¬ 
conspicuously as possible, in¬ 
to the Continuing Resolution 
which was needed to prevent 
government form closing 
down at the turn of the fiscal 
year on October 1. Members 
squirmed like minnows on 
fish hooks to avoid going on 
record as voting for it. Along 
with several colleagues, I 
stood to demand a roll call 

vote—so that all members 
would be on record as voting 
for or against the pay raise 
system. But not enough of us 
stood, and it passed on voice 
vote, so that no House 
member will have to admit to 
having supported the legisla¬ 
tion. „ 

The lifting of limits on 
senators’ speaking fees and 
the automatic pay hikes both 
raise very serious issues. 

The speaking fees, usually 
called honoraris, come from 
special interest groups. For a 
senator, a $2,500 fee for a ten 
minute speech is fairly com¬ 
mon—not because of his 
brilliant oratory but because 
the payment builds good will 
between the senator and the 
interest group. 

One senator was quoted (in 
the House cloakroom) as say¬ 
ing he had made $71,000 in 
honoraria this year, and 
didn’t want to send any of it 
back. In the public debate. 
Senate proponents argued 
that if speaking fees were 
limited, only independently 
wealthy people would ever 
run for the Senate. 

Such reasoning is flawed, 
for several obvious reasons. 
First, salaries for Senate and 
House members are ade¬ 
quate. Second, if ,the primary 
motivation for running for of¬ 

fice is to get rich, then the 
country is in worse trouble 
than we thought. Third, if 
anybody thinks salaries are 
too low, it would make more 
sense to argue publicly for a 
raise rather than more back¬ 
door payoffs. If it becomes 
routine for senators to get 
more money form special in¬ 
terest groups than from the 
taxpayers, to whom will the 
senators be more beholden? 
The implications, frankly, are 

The automatic future pay 
raises pushed on the House 
side are just as questionable. 
This procedure is a blatant at¬ 
tempt to evade the system set 
up by the Founding Fathers to 
hold members of Congress ac¬ 
countable to the public. 
Under that system, members 
of Congress would vote on 
any pay raise they felt should 
be granted in the next ses¬ 
sion, and if a member voted 
for too much of a raise, his 
constituents could throw the 
bum out before he benefitted 
from it. Clearly, you don’t get 
that kind of accountability in 
a system that allows 
members of Congress to reap 
the benefits while claiming to 
their constituents that they 
really don’t want the money. 

A few years ago, along with 
several colleagues, I challeng¬ 
ed this procedure in a legal 
case which ultimately went 

before the U.S. Supreme 
Court. We lost: the courts rul¬ 
ed that automatic pay raises 
for Congress don’t violate the 
letter of the Constitution. The 
congressional leadership was 
sufficiently embarrassed so 
that the procedure was 
suspended for a while, but it’s 
now been brought back. 

Individual congressmen 
can, of course, protest pay 
raises they feel are improper 
by refusing to accept the 
benefit of them, as I have 
done by contributing my 
share of several past pay 
raises to charitable organiza¬ 
tion. Members can also place 
personal limits on honoraria 
they will accept, as I do, to 
ayoid any possible ap¬ 
pearance of conflict of in¬ 

But honesty and accoun¬ 
tability should be built into 
the system. Instead, as 
always, Congress as a whole

With declining birth rates 
and resulting drops in secon¬

education’s primary growth 
in the future will be at the 
postsecondary and adult

preparation to help meet the 
immense requirements of our 
industries and their workers. 

As this happens, the links 
between higher education 
and vocational education 
must grow even stronger. The 
two are not separate 
endeavors. Vocational 
preparation is as clearly a 
part of higher education as 
any other discipline that 
educates people for life. It 
must be, if education is truly 
to meet the needs of the 
American people.

“We killed a group of ores, 
goblins, and other monsters,” 
said Helen Wheelock ’83. 
“Unfortunately, we were in¬ 
jured, so we set up some 
guards. Suddenly, we realiz¬ 
ed that we heard some poun¬ 
ding. We tried to open the 
door, but we were walled in. 
We used our swords to chip a 
hole out which was big 
enough to let a hobbit-thief 
out. It really didn’t matter, 
though, because the kobolds 
killed him. I ran out to get 
help, but I was attacked and 
killed by a weasel.” 

A fantastical stqry perhaps, 
but that is what the Fantasy 
Gaming Society is all about. 
“We’re not weird,” insists 
Fred Hocker ’83, President of 
the Fantasy Gaming Society. 
The group meets every Satur¬ 
day afternoon from 1 to 0 PM 
in Freeman Seminar Room to 
play fantasy role-playing 
games. The Society is a small 
group, but a dedicated one. It 
is not unheard of for some 
members to play until six in 
the morning. 

These games and the situa¬ 
tions they involve are familiar 
to anyone who has read 
J.R.R. Tolkien’s books. The 
most famous of these games 
is “Dungeons & Dragons,”or 
more familiarly, “D & D.” 

Each player begins by 
choosing a character. 
Characters may be humans, 
dwarves, elves, half-elves, or 
such exotic creatures as hob¬ 
bits, half-ores, or ores. These 
characters try to survive as 
long as possible and achieve 
as much power and wealth 
for themselves as possible. 

What a player may or may 
not do is determined by one 
player known as a dungeon 
master. The dungeon master 
creates an environment like a 
dungeon or a castle nun 
where the fantasies take 

The abilities of characters 
are determined by the roll of a 
dice. Players may have six 
characteristics: strength, in¬ 
telligence, wisdom, constitu¬ 
tion, dexterity, and charisma. 
Peter Hotvedt ’85, for exam¬ 
ple, had a problem with his 
charisma around camels. It 
was so low that they would at¬ 
tack him whenever they saw 
him. K’ami Landy ’85 was 
slightly luckier; she possessed 
the magic of dancing lights. 

Things are complicated by a 
variety of interesting 
monsters, including kobolds, 
gargoyles, golems, banshees, 
and demons.

Landon explains birth of quartets 

By Karen Merrill 

Christian A. Johnson 
Visiting Professor of Music 
H.C. Robbins Landon, the 
world’s leading authority on 
eighteenth century music, 
gave his second afternoon lec¬ 
ture on “How the String 
Quartet was Born” on Oc¬ 
tober 7. Although there were 
many composers who wrote 
quartets before the Austrian 
composer Franz Josef Haydn 
(1732-1809), it was Haydn 
“who did invent the string 
quartet as we know it to¬ 
day..for the others works 
were not ‘real’ quartets,’’said 

Landon stated that in 1757 
Haydn was barely making 
enough money to stay alive, 
gfeaydn later remarked, 
Hfehat I achieved, I achieved 
out of nothing.” Landon add¬ 
ed to this that “it was luck 
and his great capacity for 
friendship — not talent — that 
made Haydn survive these 

After being robbed of 
everything, Haydn “who 
needed a rest from the shock” 
was kindly put up at the cas¬ 
tle of the great patron, Count 
Furnburg, who encouraged 
young composers. It was 
Furnburg who enjoyed 
Haydn’s string trios (for two 
violins and one cello), and it 
was these trios that were the 
direct precursors of the string 

At this point in the lecture, 
the audience was treated to 

the American premiere of the 
Haydn trio in E flat, for “these 
trios were not re-published 
until just recently," said Lan¬ 

The story of how the string 
quartet then came about is 
very simple. Said Landon, 
“Furnburg suggested to 
Haydn to add a viola to the 
two violins and cello.” Since 
the viola was Haydn’s 
favorite instrument, he had 
no objections, and the string 
quartet was born. A Prussian 
officer who heard the 
quartets being played refer¬ 
red to them as “cassatios” 
which translates to 
serenades. Landon noted 
that perhaps Haydn modelled 
his quartet form after the 
street serenades which a 
group of musicians in Austria 
would play to beautiful 
women. What arose was a 
five movement form (allegro, 
minuet, slow movement, 
minuet, and finale) which 
“took over the existing diver¬ 
timento,” he said. 

“People went bonkers over 
the quartets,” said Landon. 
“His works migrated into Ita¬ 
ly which before didn’t think 
much of the northern music. 
They circulated all over 
Europe, and even in northern 
Germany which considered 
the quartets frivolous com¬ 
pared to their sober music.” 

“But Haydn had introduced 
something new into music, 
Dr. Landon continued,“and 
that was wit. Bach and 

Beethoven didn’t have this. 
Haydn chose to see the funny 
side of life.” 

With the publishing of his 
string quartet in B flat Opus 1, 
number 1, Haydn’s interna¬ 
tional career had begun, 
along with the establishment 
of an Austrian school. His 
great refinement as a com¬ 
poser came from his Italian 
teacher Nlcolo Porpora. Lan¬ 
don said that Haydn almost 
became his slave, receiving 
some abuse although Haydn 
remarked, “I gladly put up 
with it gladly." Under Por¬ 
pora, he learned how to avoid 
notational inaccuracies, one 
of his major problems. By 
1757, said Landon, “he was a 
finished young composer 
after eight years of hard 

The last topic of Landon’s 
lecture concerned a recently- 
discovered fraud concerning 
Haydn’s famous Opus 3 
quartets. Dr. Landon told the 
story of how he and music 
scholar Dr. Alan Tyson 
discovered that on the first 
edition of Haydn’s Opus 3 
quartets, there was another 
name underneath Haydn’s. 

As it turned out, the real 
composer was a Southern 
German Benedictine monk, P. 
Roman Hofstetter, who com¬ 
posed much music and had 
taken Haydn as a model. 
Haydn’s copyist, it appears, 
had included these quartets 

into a great thematic collec- The? finale to the lecture

Romance, laughs 
in ‘Paul Bunyan ’ 

By T.W. Bright ’85 

Legendary stories never die; 
they just become amplified 
anecdotes. This is most cer¬ 
tainly the case with the 
legend of the lumberjack Paul 
Bunyan, as “Paul Bunyan: A 
Musical Tall Tale’’ 
demonstrates. When the ax¬ 
iom about legends growing in¬ 
to anecdotes is applied to this 
comedy-melodrama it results 
in a thrilling and satirical 
takeoff on one of North 
America’s most popular 

This musical, created dur¬ 
ing the summer by musician 
and lyricist Dan Elish ’83 and 
script writer and actor Paul 
Shoup ’83, will premiere at 8 
PM on October 22 and will 
play through the October 25 
in the Hepburn Zoo. 

Centering on the power 
struggle between Paxil Bu¬ 
nyan, played by Bill Martin 
’84 and Loudmouth Johnson, 

played by Paul Shoup ’83, the 
show is directed by Will 
Harde ’83 who said that he 
hopes the audience will pick 
up on the spirit of melodrama. 
He also said he hopes that the 
audience will become involv¬ 
ed in cheering the heroes and 
booing the villians. 

A Gilbert and Sullivan-style 
operetta, “Paul Bunyan: A 
Musical Tall Tale” boasts a 
cast of “lumberjacks who 
may recall Monty Python, 
heroes, heroines, and 
dastardly villains with waxed 
moustaches,” said Harde. 
“It’s a love story and a labor 

As Elish stated in his own 
style, “We want the audience 
to enjoy themselves.’’ 
Whether you seek a piping 
hot romance or a lot of 
laughs, find your way to the 
Wright Theatre and pick up 
your tickets; “Paul Bunyan: A 
Musical Tall Tale” is a 
musical well worth seeing.

Opus 20 no.3 in G minor is the 
most difficult of the Opus 20

the music nearly

“Hadyn turned the quartet 
into a great intellectual vehi¬

afternoon in Dana 
Auditorium. To a small, but 
very interested audience, 
Landon lectured on the 
"Austrian Crisis”, or more 
specifically, the musical 
transformation of the string 

Haydn’s earliest string 
quartets were known, said 
Landon, for “thier charm and 
wit.” In 1768 Haydn’s new 
understanding of the intellec¬ 
tual and emotional force of 
music began to manifest 
itself. Haydn composed the 
Opus 9 string quartets in 1768, 
and Opus 9 no. 4 in D. minor is 
considered “the first great 

The Opus 20 quartets, com¬ 
posed in 1772, show this more 
“austere side” of Haydn, said 
Landon. The autographed 
manuscripts of these quartets 
have survived, and they 
reveal the divine “trance” 
and “inspiration” under 
which these quartets were 
composed. Haydn was 
“playing with fire,” Landon 
said, as he experimented with 
the power of harmony, bring¬ 
ing the quartet into the total 
worlds of the intellectual. s 
In these quartets, "through 
his “austere, mathematical

The later string quartets of 
Haydn shaped the musical 
world, for the great 18th cen¬

Haydn established the string

Where can a'midd student 
go when longing for a mid¬ 
night snack in a quiet, cozy 
atmosphere? A trek to the 
Zepplin House is a possible 
choice, but although a stu¬ 
dent would be assured peace 
and quiet, the ambiance 
leaves alot to be desired. One 
could stay in one’s room - 
light some candles and put on 
some mellow music - but a 
quick peek in the refriderator 
often reveals unappetizing 
substances which lead to the 
realization that dining “at 
home” requires planning 
ahead. What about popcorn? 
Sounds good, but who wants 
to deal with the mes or the 
hordes of people invariably 
attracted by the strong 

So the question again arises 
what is a student to do when 
hungry and tired and faced 
with a set of unappealing 
alternatives? Well, there is a 
place, in a not too far distant 
location, where one can 
satisfy one’s craving. The

Rugby remains undefeated 

By Paul Quinlan'84 

The Middlebury men’s 
rugby club ran its record to 
5-0, remaining the school’s on¬ 
ly undefeated team this fall, 
by destroying visiting Keene 
State 27-0 last Saturday. The 
Panthers have now outscored 
their opponents 115-6 and 
have firmly established 
themselves as the finest team 
in Middlebury rugby history. 

Once again it was the fine 
play of the scrum and the 
kicking of backfield captain 
and fly halfback Ed Brown ’83 
that led to victory on a muddy 
pitch. “Ed’s kicking really 
opens the wing for running,” 
commented wing Dave Lynch 
’83, who had another good 
day himself, scoring one try 
and barely missing on 
another. Brown also had a 
perfect day place-kicking, 
making three penalty kicks 
and converting three extra¬ 

As usual, the Panthers 
started slowly, and Brown’s 
penalty kicks were the only 
points if the first half, giving 
Middlebury a 9-0 lead. 
However, the second half was 
different. ’’ • 

“We were mentally more in¬ 
to the game by the second 
half,” said scrum captain 
Duke Wellington ’83. The first 
try came minutes into the 
half, when runs by Frank 
Albanese ’82, John Ratoff ’82, 
and Brown put Middlebury in 
scoring position. 

On the next scrum-down 
Brown took a pass from 
scrum half Tim Robinson ’84, 
who was playing in place of 
the injured Doug Rich ’82, and 
went weakside. Brown broke 
one tackle and then passed 
off to Lynch, who broke 
numerous tackles and then 
outran four more defenders 

for the try. 

Middlebury added two 
more tallies towards the end 
to complete the whitewash. 
Steve Kiernan ’82 broke loose 
from a ruck and rumbled into 
the end-zone before being 
stripped of the ball. For¬ 
tunately, Jamie O’Brien '85 
was there to fall on the ball 

for the Panther try. The amaz- 
♦ ing kick-for-touch by Gene 
“White Shoes-Golden Hands” 
Cleaves ’83 set up the score. 

Following the ensuing line- 
out, Lynch carried the orb to 
the goal line and dropped it, 
allowing Andy Quint ’82 to 
fall on it and add the 27th 

KDR wins IM football 

By Red Grange '99 

The Kappa Delta Rho (KDR) 
“Child Molesters” defeated 
Voter’s Choice III 18-12 in 
sudden-death overtime to 
write the final chapter in the 
biggest rivalry in Middlebury 
intramural sports. 

Down 12-0 with less than 
five minutes remaining in the 
game, KDR made an im¬ 
pressive comeback to capture 
their first title in three years. 
Voter entered the game as 
the two-time defending cham¬ 

Tying the game 12-12 with 
: 02 remaining, KDR won the 
coin-flip and marched down 
the field steadily. Quarter¬ 
back Rick Moorhead ’82 then 
passed to Dave Levy ’82 in the 
end-zone for the winning 

Other members of the 
championship squad include 
Tom Ostler ’82, Tim Bazemore

By Steve Riley '82 

Mixing a rejuvenated pass¬ 
ing attack with a solid ground 
game and a punishing 
defense, Middlebury rode the 
arm of Jim Loveys and the 
hands of Beau Coash to a 22-7 
college football win over 
Amherst last Saturday. 

Before 3,500 Alumni 
Weekend fans at Porter Field, 
the host Panthers broke open 
a tight defensive battle in the 
second quarter, and 
established themselves as a 
more complete football team 
just in time for tomorrow’s 
showdown with powerful 

“We are an improving foot¬ 
ball team. There is still more 
that we have to do, but you 
can never really play perfect 
football. We worked hard for 
this win, but we had excellent 
control of the contest by the 
second half,” remarked winn¬ 
ing coach Mickey Heinecken. 

Middlebury’s awesome 
defense against the rush 
(allowing just 53 yards per 
game) stifled Amherst early 
and often. Senior defensive 
end John Hayes abused Lord 
Jeff quarterback Brian Cur¬ 
ran on fourth-and-one, and 
Middlebury had the ball on 
its own 19 following a 
scoreless opening quarter. 

Two plays later, Loveys 
fired a strike to halfback Bob 
Ritter ’82, who utilized a block 
by Coash, and sprinted 78 
yards for the game’s fist 
touchdown. “For the first time 
in a long while, the bomb had 
a vital impact,” added 

Coash then drew a pass in¬ 
terference call inside the 
Amherst 10, and Loveys 
found his senior classmate 
amidst the end-zone traffic 
for an eight-yard touchdown. 
Bill Genovese ’82 added the 
EXP to make it 14-0 with 3:53 
showing on the first-half 

Finally, with Amherst driv¬ 
ing toward the score late in 
the half, Middlebury comer- 
back Neal Rinquist ’84 snat¬ 
ched the first of his two in¬ 
terceptions and the Panther 
lead was intact at intermis¬ 

Quarter three saw the Pan¬ 
ther running game move the 
ball downfield steadily, 
behind fullback John Weeks 
'83 and halfback Martin Beat¬ 
ty ’84. Coash rambled 19 
yards with a reception to the 
Amherst one, then scored two 
plays later on the three-foot 

pass from Loveys. 

Amherst did have one mo¬ 
ment of glory, as Curran 
found big end Dana King for 
a 55-yard touchdown, but it 
turned out to be the only Pan¬ 
ther defensive lapse of the 

Middlebury added to the 
margin with just 4:41 left, as 
alert defensive back Chris 
Pierson ’84 sacked Amherst 
punter Tom McDavitt in the 
mud for a safety. This marked 
the second consecutive year 
Middlebury embarassed the 
Jeffs by scoring a safety. 

Though the headline- 
grabbers were Coash and 
Loveys, the Panther defense 
was once again stupendous. 
Ends Hayes and Mike Bor- 
chard '83, tackle Jon Good ’83, 
linebackers Bill Genovese ’82 
and Chip Sullivan ’82, plus 
nose man Gil Amaral ’82 were 
particularly outstanding. 

They were consistently sup¬ 
ported by tackles Roy Giar- 
russo ’83 and Bob Mahl '82, 
linebacker Brian Currie ’83, 
and a swarming secondary. 
Scott Laughinghouse ’83 
came up with another in¬ 
terception for Middlebury, 
and Brace Gevertz ’83, Mike 
Heffeman ’82, Andy Varney 
’84, Charlie Robinson ’82, and 
Bob Gallahue ’83 all turned in 
fine efforts as well. 

Offensively, the Panthers 
rolled up 325 yards in total of¬ 
fense, thanks to the blocking 
of linemen Bill DeSantis ’82, 
Tom Hiser ’82, John Lyons ’82, 
Jim McKeon ’82, and Kevin 
Naughton '83. End Ted Virtue 
'82 added four receptions for 
47 yards to complement 

Tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 
PM the Panthers face Tufts at 
Ellis Oval in Medford. The 
Jumbos have beaten Mid¬ 
dlebury three consecutive 
years, and though their 
record is just 1-1-1 this season, 
they are probably the 
toughest team on the Panther 

“You can’t help but be im¬ 
pressed by the athletic talent 
they have. Also, we have not 
faced a Veer offense such as 
they run yet this year. Their 
backfield is impressive, their 
defense strong, and their 
passing game outstanding,” 
noted Heinecken. Last week, 
though, it was the Panthers 
who excelled in these three 
aspects. They must do so 
again to defeat a potent Jum¬ 
bo eleven.

Male booters hang tough... 


By Hansi Muller ’84 

The Panther men’s soccer 
team stunned Dartmouth 2-1 
in overtime last Tuesday at 
Hanover, raising its record to 
4-1-2 in the process. 

On a beautiful autumn 
afternoon, goals by Bob Gulla 
’83 and Peter Ulrich ’83 spur¬ 
red the Blue to victory. Rank¬ 
ed fourth in New England 
division III, Middlebury con¬ 
tinues to be the surprise of the 
area’s teams. 

The Panthers travel to St. 
Michael’s tomorrow, before 
hosting Plymouth Oct. 21 in 
the first of a four-game, 
season-ending home-stand. 
After that, the booters appear 
to be strong candidates for 
the ECAC tournament during 
the second week of 

Playing at their home 
swamp last Saturday, Mid- 


dlebury was handed a 
humiliating 3-0 loss by an in¬ 
spired Amherst squad. In ear¬ 
ning their first defeat, the 
Panthers were quickly 
brought back to reality after 
a brief taste of glory. 

As, Middlebury floundered 
in the mud, the Lord Jeffs us-, 
ed excellent ball control to 
break through the Panther 
defense several times. The 
skill of the Amherst forwards 
became apparent in the first 
half when they put in two 
unanswered goals, and 
jumped to a commanding 

In the second half, the Pan¬ 
thers were forced to play an 
impossible game of catch-up. 
Middlebury was able to out- 
hustle the Lord Jeffs, who 
were content to sit on their 
advantage. Although Mid¬ 
dlebury applied tremendous 
pressure, the ankle-deep mud 

proved a far tougher oppo¬ 
nent than the Amherst 
defense. Unable to take any 
worthwhile shots, Middlebury 
threw away many sure goals 
by hitting the post twice and 
by missing three open-net 
scoring opportunities. \ 

This extremely frustrating 
afternoon for the Panthers 
was well characterized by co¬ 
captain Dana Mitiguy’s goal 
(into the wrong net) with only 
33 seconds remaining in the 
game to give Middlebury the 
final 3-0 defeat. 

Perhaps their numerous key 
injuries, many bad breaks, or 
even the atrocious field could 
be blamed for the Panthers 
worst performance of the 
year. But regardless of the ex¬ 
cuses, Middlebury will have 
to play like a unit again if 
they hope to finish the season 
with an outstanding record.

By Tina Nef’84 

Middlebury’s women’s soc¬ 
cer team dropped twp games 
this past week, loosing 1-0 to 
Castleton State and 5-0 to 
Vermont. Although in both 
matches the Panther women 
had opportunities to score, 
they just couldn’t capitalize 
on them. 

The team travelled to 
Castleton State Monday, and 
played on a rather makeshift 
field full of frost heaves. On 
the treacherous terrain Mid¬ 
dlebury “played well from a 
team standpoint,” according 
to coach Russ Reilly, however 
“we couldn’t seem to put the 
ball past Casteton’s ex¬ 
perienced freshman goalie.” 
Several excellent 

breakaways presented nice 
opportunities for Lynn Hartel 
’82 and Jenny Godfrey ’85, but 
these fast fowards just didn’t 

Middlebury’s defense 
played an excellent game and 
managed to keep Castleton’s 
strong team to only one goal, 
which was scored early in the 
second half. It was the of¬ 
fense, however, that couldn’t 
finish off the chances. 

On an extremely sloppy and 
swampy field in Burlington, 
UVM blasted the Panther 
women 5-0 on Oct. 7. Reilly 
maintained that only two of 
UVM’s goals were “legitimate 
soccer gaols" and the other 
three came from slippery field 
conditions. Again Middlebury 
had good offensive oppor¬ 
tunities but failed to put the 
ball in the goal. 

This week Middlebury fatpes 
its toughest week of thd 
season and hopefully the 
women will come out of their 
somewhat lethargic scoring 
slump and end their losing

But if Middlebury can knock 
off the eleventh best team in 
New England (Vermont), they 
can whip Skidmore. 

By'Karlene Goller ’83 

I didn’t sleep at all last 

night,” Middlebury - coach 

Missy Hopkinson told her 

vasity field hockey team 

before they whipped Williams 
5-2 last Thursday. Middlebury 

considers Williams as their 

biggest rival, but this year the 

host Panthers “played our 

best hockey ever, according 

to their goalie, Susi Killer 

Keating ’83. The Panthers are 

really on the move now, as 

they have raised their record 

to 3-1-2. 

After sprinkling during 

warm-ups, the weather 

threatened during the entire 
game, but to everyone’s 
amazement held off just long 
enough for Middlebury to 
finish off Williams. As soon as 
the final whistle blew, the rain 
resumed. “It would have real¬ 
ly been messy but we were us¬ 
ed to a wet field and we knew 
we had to flick,” Hopkinson 

Middlebury racked up 24 
shots at goal compared to a 
measly nine for Williams. The 
Panther defense worked 

beautifully and support was 
good. Their offense brought 
the ball straight down the 
center, despite Williams’ at¬ 
tempts to bring play ,out in the 
wings. “Our speed was key,” 
Hopkinson added, “y© played 
such an intelligent game, 
everyone was outstanding. I

the leading Panther scorer 
with six goals so far this

her ever-popular “whiz-flick” 
which has stumped all the 
goalies McKenna has faced. 
“She’s a tough one,” com¬ 
mented the Williams goalie.

Middlebury’s freshman 
football team dropped its 
third game, 16-11 to the Nor¬ 
wich Cadets, last Friday in 
Northfield, Vermont. Th^ 
Panther Cubs are 0-3 on the 
season, but again they beat 
themselves with critical tur¬ 
novers and breakdowns. 

Norwich jumped out to 9-0 
lead by scoring a safety and 
returning an interception 50 
yards for a touchdown. The 
Panthers came right back 
and drove 60 yards when Jim 

Ammeen capped the drive 
with a 30-yard field goal. Run¬ 
ning back Jim MacKay was 
very instrumental in the 
drive, and eended the day 
with 90 yards on 15 carries. 
The half ended 9-3, with Nor¬ 
wich holding the slim margin. 

Norwich scored first again 
in the second half, moving 37 
yards for a touchdown. The 
Cadets found it very difficult 
to move against a stingy Pan¬ 
ther difense. Led by Colin 
Naughtoii, Rob Bradall, 
Daryl Ashley, and Greg 
Granger, Middlebury allowed 

only one touchdown and very 
few first downs. The third 
quarter ended 16-3, however, 
and for the third successive 
game, the Cubs were forced 
to play catch-up ball. 

Middlebury coach Peter 
Price felt it was a “great ef¬ 
fort” by his team. With a few 
more breaks and a few less 
turnovers the frosh will cer¬ 
tainly be able to get into the 
win column. They will be try¬ 
ing to get that win today 
against the Williams Ephmen 
in Williamstown.

“Wait ’til next year” was the 
last comment coach Ed Som¬ 
mers made on his women's 
tennis team’s 2-7-0 season. In¬ 
deed, we will have to wait un¬ 
til next fall to see if the Mid¬ 
dlebury netwomen can pull 
off a winning season. 

Their last three matches in¬ 
cluded an encouraging 5-4 
loss to Williams, an 8-1 loss to 
St. Lawrence, and a 6-3 set¬ 
back against Vermont (a con¬ 
siderable improvement over 
their 8-0 loss to the same 
Catamount team earlier this 

Recognition is certainly due 
to Elizabeth Old ’84 for her 
wins against ^VM and St. 
Lawrence. Elizabeth Fordyce 
’84 and Anne Geary ’82 came 
back aggressively with a 
doubles win against UVM, 
and Anne Shaughnessy ’85 
came back after missing two 
matches to win at second 

With the New England’s 
scheduled next week, the 
women are looking forward 
to some traditional wild 
raiding of Amherst mer¬ 
chants and Sommers is pray¬ 
ing for a few wins. 

In light of the stiff competi¬ 
tion Middlebury has faced 
this year, it seems fairly ob¬ 
vious that there must be some 
major changes in the pro¬ 
gram itself if the Panthers 
wish to continue to play 
“serious” women’s tennis. 

With part-time coaches, no 
pre-season, and the present 
schedule, it is doubtful that 
their performance will im¬ 
prove in these days of in¬ 
creased emphasis on 
women’s intercollegiate 
sports. Hopefully the situa¬ 
tion can be remedied. Until 
then, we will all have to wait 
until next year.

Dear Mr. Present, 

I just had to write a note of thanks to the man who put 
me on easy street. For years, I was looked at as the 
world’s worst gambler. My life was a mess. Then, about a 
month ago, I began reading your column on predicting 
pro football when you correctly picked the outcome of 
three games. 

Immediately, I knew your good fortune couldn’t last 
long. I may not know much about gambling, but I do 
know that anyone who goes to a rich, preppy college in 
New England can’t possibly know beans about handicap¬ 
ping pro football. Assuming your first week’s luck would 
soon run out, I decided that all’s I needed to do was read 
yopur predictions and bet just the opposite way that you 

In the first week, you picked Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and 
Atlanta, so I simply bet heavily against those teams. I 
came out with two out of three winners. The next week 
you said Dallas over St. Louis and Washington over San 
Fransisco. By betting on the Cardinals and 49ers I scored 
two more winners. 

And then last week I really hit paydirt. You predicted 
St. Louis over the Giants , New England over the Jets, 
and San Diego over the Vikings. I immediately called my 
bookie and placed bets on Minnesota and the two New 
York teams. And by last Sunday night I had three more 
successes. That makes me seven out of eight for the year. 

Not only am I in the position to buy the Mercedes I 
always wanted, but I even was able to pay off all the back 
alimony I owed my ex-wife. Best of all. I’m now engaged 
'to Ethel, a well-proportioned show girl at the Sands 
Hotel, who used to think me a loser but now finds me (and 
my money) irresistible. 

Well, I have to go now. Thanks again. And please send 
me your picks for next week. Ethel wants a new fur. 

Sincerely yours 
Gamblin’ Gus 

P.S. Please pick against the Jets again. They are my 
favorite team and I want them to win. 

Dear Gus, 

My picks this week are Dallas, giving, four at home to 
Los Angeles, Washington getting seven and one-half at 
Miami, and, to make you happy, Buffalo giving three 
points at Shea against the Jets. ^ 

Happy returns, 
Rick Present ’82
